BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Here are a few thoughts to consider before you begin on the journey of choosing your perfect bath. Keep in mind that it’s OK not to know everything right now. This buyer’s guide will help to answer some of the questions you may have in order to find the bathtub that best fits YOU.
Questions to Ask Yourself
1. Why are you seeking a bathtub?
Are you replacing an old bath? Remodeling your master bathroom? Building a new home? This will help you have the conversations you need, to hone in on which bathtubs are right for you and your space! Remodeling projects often have some size parameters based on existing plumbing, but new homes- well, the sky is the limit!
2. Who is the primary user?
How tall is the primary bather? Do they have any ailments or special space requirements? Will one or two people be using this bath at once?
3. What is the purpose of the bath?
Is your bath a soothing getaway? A daily soak? A respite for sore muscles? A place to clean children or pets? How you use your bathtub will help you decide what features you choose, and if your tub is a system tub or a soaker.
An important first step before thinking about features and options is determining which type of installation suits your needs & your space. This is especially true if you are remodeling or replacing a bath, since existing plumbing or walls may dictate your bath’s dimensions, size, or installation type.
Here are the bathtub installations Jetta currently offers:
An alcove bathtub is an excellent choice for many secondary bathrooms because of its easy installation and general fit with most bathroom designs. Alcove bathtubs also give homeowners the option of creating a tub-shower combination, with a design that naturally maximizes small spaces.
Drop-in tubs are made of an acrylic shell fitted inside a framed enclosure that can be finished to match bathroom cabinets or tiles. Drop-in tubs feature a raised rim along the top, making them a favorite for those who enjoy long soaks in deeper water. For added indulgence, drop-in tubs offer a wide variety of hydrotherapy options.
Many consider freestanding tubs the pinnace of form-follows-function design, with their trademark sleek lines and bold shapes. For those who prefer a clean, contemporary style without compromising comfort, freestanding tubs deliver – with deep bathing wells, plenty of hydrotherapy options, angled backrests and showstopping looks.
While undermounts offer many similar features to drop-ins, an undermount bathtub is installed beneath a rim or solid surface. The surrounding deck or area is covered and the bathtub itself is supported by the floor structure underneath. This is actually very similar to a drop-in bathtub, except that a drop-in is placed above the rim, whereas an undermount is installed beneath, opening up lots of creative opportunities to design a surrounding deck that matches your bathroom’s aesthetic.
Sometimes a home improvement can be a life improvement as well. When a walk-in tub is what you need, you can trust Jetta to deliver maximum safety and assurance along with all the luxurious extras. Plus, every walk-in tub we sell is ADA friendly and comes with a limited lifetime warranty on the shell, door and door seal so you can relax and know you’ve made a smart investment that’s an investment in your health as well.
When you want more from a bathtub than the simple act of taking a bath, hydrotherapy options give you the benefits of healing, relaxation, rejuvenation, invigoration … or any combination that feels like luxury to you. At Jetta, we believe an extravagant bathing experience doesn’t have to come at an extravagant price. You deserve the best. You deserve Jetta.
A therapeutic soak will leave your body and mind feeling refreshed and cleansed. Available in all of Jetta’s product lines, this is a classic hydrotherapy option for renewal, rejuvenation and total spa-like escape.

SHAPE & STYLE
Your bathtub should be an extension of you. It reflects your tastes, style, and bathing preferences. Choosing a bathtub can be difficult, but we're here to help! A bathtub should not only suit your physical needs, but also fit in with the bathroom style and look. Don't worry; we have numerous shapes and sizes to make your dream bathroom a reality!
WHICH SHAPE WORKS BEST FOR YOU?
While personal preference is always important, the style of your bathroom and home, and the way you will use your tub are also important when considering which tub shape will best suit your needs.
Is your home’s style contemporary or more traditional? Which would fit better in the space – oval or rectangle? Who will be the primary bather – or will there more often be two bathers? Consider all of these things as you think about shapes. Jetta bathtubs are available in three different options, as seen below:
The most common tub shape for individual bathers, rectangular tubs feature bold, angular lines with generous bathing space. These are a popular choice for a secondary bath alcove or a master bath with decking where you drop-in or undermount.
Oval tubs with softer, smoother lines and a curved design, typically the oval shape means that the basin requires less water to fill. Oval tubs would be available as a drop-in or undermount installation, as well as a timeless freestanding.
Corner tubs are a popular choice among many builders and bathers. It's a great way to maximize space between vanities in a master bathroom, and many homeowners love the design that is often ideal for two bathers.
CHOOSING YOUR MATERIAL
You might think, a tub is a tub. Yet it's so much more. However what you don't see is possibly more important than what you DO see. Jetta offers both cast acrylic and DADOQuartz options, ensuring customizability and form meets function material.
MORE DURABLE, MORE BEAUTIFUL
Jetta bathtubs are manufactured with continuous cast acrylic. What this means, is that we use a large, high quality sheet of acrylic and form it into the beautiful shape you select. We then reinforce your bathtub with layers of fiberglass. The structural strength of a Jetta bathtub is superior to the gel-coat options you may find in many other options. This also means that plumbers love to install our tubs. The minor scuffs you might create when installing a Jetta tub can be easily buffed out. The same imperfection created when installing an entry price point gel-coat or stamped steel tub leaves lasting damage that can't be easily repaired.
Made from materials sourced from South Africa, DADOquartz is a variety of silica, which is mined, crushed, and formed with other natural minerals to create the unique DADOquartz material. With its exceptional hardness and longevity, it is used to manufacture perfectly crafted premium baths.
